Actually a MS 34 HT might provide the space & AC you are looking for by clearing the saloon and being creative with seating.
The fwd cabin would be " wasted space" for just day cruising.

You are right. I’ll have to move something here and I don’t need sleeping space except for storage. I’m thinking of a down east style might be a better fit.

Peter, I like your thinking. A down east would be a better fit. Several are available in the NE. Ray Robertís is a nice lake for camping and boating. I looked at a boat there that wasnít as advertised. I looked at a Sea Ray trawler on Texoma that I thought had poor fly bridge access and was a little too tired.

I think for the size lake you are discussing; you really don't need the deep draft and heavy construction of many DownEast boats. One would though still better that a full cabin trawler.

Quite a few of those Chessie deadrises are used for charter fishing boats.
